Subj: CBR article about Captain Mar-Vell

It seems they also think that Marv is the most likely "internet breaking" icon to return in Legacy

They of course give the reason why he shouldn't and of course that reason is how he died, and I have to disagree with that.

Was Captain America or Bucky cheapened when Bucky was restored as the Winter Soldier? No. Many good stories came from that.

Was Jean Grey cheapened when she was brought back WAAAAY back when X-factor first started? Nope. Many good tales of her adjusting to being back, Cyclops being married to Madelyne, etc came from that. Now constantly making her the Phoenix and killing her and bringing her back ad nauseum, okay that gets cheap.

has Magneto been cheapened by all his apparent deaths and returns? yes. While there are some good stories that have from it, the character has been cheapened.

Has the Red Skull been cheapened? hard to say. He is the ultimate nazi/ratzi and an insidious evil. I hope he is finally done though as of Secret Empire, but I doubt it.

Apocalypse: with all his origins and returns? yeah he's cheapened.

In the right hands, many good stories about Marv and his return and its impact on Earth, the Kree, and universe itself can be told.

Also the CBR article points out that Marv was created 50 years ago and is likely to have a role in Carol's origins in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, so we have the golden anniversary of his creation and a movie coming.

Also I will again point out he was the first hero to stop Thanos back when he was wielding the cosmic cube.

Also Marvel states there is room for the new characters and the Legacy characters so that includes Mar-Vell unless hypocrisy rears its head.

If they can bring Bucky back and make it a good story, they can do it with Captain Mar-Vell!

Also the article fails to mention the times Marv briefly was brought back only to return to being dead.

But it also gives a good summary of the trademark history.
